There are a bunch of book reader apps in the App Store which use public domain classics for content. What sets Classics apart is the UI — it does very little, but what it does do, it does with panache. Pages actually animate as they turn, for example. I can’t see myself reading an entire novel one iPhone screenful at a time, but if you can, for $3 Classics is worth checking out.
